WWF´s EPCI looks at the environmental aspects of a company´s policies and targets,
as well as the environmental performance of the overall production.
WWF has invited 80 of the world´s most important and strategically relevant pulp and paper manufacturers to disclose their ecological footprint in the EPCI 2015. 31 manufacturers this year took leadership in transparency in the EPCI 2015, up from 25 in 2013 and 15 in 2011. See the list of participants and non-participants.
The EPCI is a tool for companies who are striving for continual improvement of their environmental performance for pulp and paper production and want to be recognized publicly for their leadership in transparency.
“At IKEA we value transparency and find company and product information like those present on the WWF Environmental Paper Company Index and Check your Paper useful to inform our supply chain analysis.”
The EPCI recognizes the transparency and progress of participating companies over time. Results are presented per company in a non-comparative way and in alphabetical order.
The WWF Environmental Paper Company Index is published biannually. It credits transparency and continual improvement over time and does not directly compare companies. WWF invites other companies to disclose their performance at any time between now and EPCI 2017.
